Acting for the greater good

March 13, 2017

Even with productions of My Fair Lady, Cardenio, and A Wrinkle in Time well under way, several theatre students still found ways to give back to the Grand Traverse community.

The Theatre Department’s Community Service Team led several instructional clinics for young and old during late February and early March. Students Moses Bossenbroek, Leah Cohen, Kyle Elliot and Ben Rodenmeyer taught an acting class for youth participants during the annual Winterlochen festival on Feb. 18.

Several other members of the Community Service Team visited Cordia, a local retirement center. While at the center, the students led the members in a Shakespeare workshop. The students plan to return several times throughout the semester to workshop scenes with the Cordia members.
